    School teacher gold gone can't change how it happened, can't apologize for accusations of highrgradins it is what it is.
    Anyways back to the millins.
    Been running off n on for about three hours on the new stones will get a pic of the break-in, progress today one thing for sure there's no hopping.

    Have to bolt the shaker table down hook up plumbing reinstall my drain system to the pond and it's ready to do the finish of the break-in grind.

    The grind will be ready today I believe ? Actually have to buy some buckets mine are all dry rotted, lesson learned, pulp settling in a rotted bucket bad idea they bulge n break.

    So the pulp stays in the pan till I get up to home depot, safer that way. Been windy here the ore is drying out fast, should be back to crushing in a day or so.
    Today we start getting our stuff in order to do a memorial dig, hardrock.
    Going to try gets 6 ft deeper before I call it.
    Last chapter in the school teacher mine story, lot of memories from the old days fair bit of gold won, fair bit lost.
    Maybe we gets one more pinch for the road!

    I'm getting to old for all this diggin stuff.

    You might look into getting food grade buckets. I think they are more durable than the regular buckets.
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Break-in done, I used much water in the mix, kept my ore gritty, so I have a load that is a little chunky as the lighter stuff stayed on top.
    Give it another hour or so it's done ready to table.

    Maybe I can get my second riffle cons from my rocker box panned today, we where playing around rocking the box back when it was wet, alittle always gets past that first riffle, also it's not as exciting as the first riffle so I save to pan another day.
    See if I can get a gold pic today, I'm Gettin a few Gettin crumbs.

    Sick day today, its really nice out for prospecting.
    Couple more mill pics
